94 WYSP (Philadelphia, PA) 94 WYSP PHILLY REMOVED KIDD CHRIS!! THE ONLY FUNNY THING IN PHILLY HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY!! Philadelphia Pennsylvania
*Consumer Comment: I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL AND WISH I COULD HELP
On May 16, 2008, the Kidd Chris show was SUDDENLY yanked off of WYSP's airwaves and KIDD CHRIS and his staff were terminated. The action was taken in response to the airing of a song parody described by CBS Radio spokeswoman Karen Mateo as "highly offensive and completely inappropriate for broadcast," which had been performed by a guest of the show on March 21 2008 (LADY GASH). Also Fired was program director John Cook. FMQB reported a possible return of Opie and Anthony, whom Foley replaced when he moved to mornings.
The Kidd Chris show was the Funniest thing to happen to Philly radio since the departure of HOWARD STERN. He had a HUGE following - still does - with all of us waiting on where he will go next. I used to LAUGH so hard in the morning rush hour - it made my day. His material was original and yes edgy, but it was GOLD. He had celebrity guests, hillarious bits, and a wack pack like none other - It made me proud to live in Philly - for once we had a superstar like Howard Stern in our own hometown. NOW WE GOT NOTHING. ITS BORING - ITS THE SAME OLD SAME OLD. I used to COMMEND 94 wysp for taking a chance on the Kidd Chris show because even though it was edgy - its was PHILADELPHIA at heart.
94 WYSP ripped us off - BIG TIME. There's nothing to laugh at in the mornings anymore - NOTHING. WE WERE RIPPED OFF.
What happened to FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!?? I guess advertising DOLLARS rule the world now huh?
